KAR UK, a leading wholesaler of irrigation equipment, has boosted its team with the appointment of Lee Williams who joins as a new area sales manager.
Lee will be covering the areas of North England, North Wales and Scotland, and brings with him a wealth of experience.
After studying for a Diploma in Horticulture at the prestigious Myerscough College, Lee started his career as an apprentice greenkeeper. He then switched golf for football when he accepted a position at Manchester City FC’s Carrington training ground – a role which saw him progress to head groundsman after just twelve months.
With further roles at Oldham Athletic FC, and as a contractor, a sales manager and a technical sports turf journalist with Pitchcare, Lee has remained in the groundscare industry for the entirety of his career.
He revealed that the opportunity to join KAR UK was just too good to turn down: “Having been in the industry a long time, it is a company I know very well,” said Lee. “I have heard a lot about the products, particularly Hunter irrigation, and everyone who has used the equipment is always full of praise. The company also has a market leading reputation and that really drew me towards accepting the job.
“KAR UK is a small but highly professional team and it has a family feel to it – everyone is there to support and help one another, and that really appeals to me.
“I’m looking forward to getting back out there and meeting new people and customers,” continued Lee. “It is a new challenge, and in a way, it will be like going back to school for me as there will be a lot to learn, but I’m looking forward to the future and hopefully playing my part in growing the business.”
